Superintendent's Message

I am extremely proud and grateful to serve the students, parents, and staff of Bentley Community Schools.  I am encouraged by the level of passion, commitment, and care the community and staff continue to invest in our students.  

It is an exciting time to be a Bentley Bulldog!  I am eager to help build a vision for Bentley Community Schools; a vision that is built upon preparing students not only for success on standardized tests, but for life beyond the four walls of the classroom.  Your children deserve a place to learn, grow, and develop skills that will provide them a competitive edge in our 21st Century global economy. Our staff will be prepared to deliver this!

As the 2016-2017 School year develops, I expect our district to focus upon the following major initiatives for our students:

  • Becoming a model district in terms of parent and community communications.  Bentley residents and parents will have district information at their fingertips!

  • Creating a K-5 literacy plan that is second to none.  Our teachers will be trained and supported to build the highest functioning readers and writers in the county!  

  • Preparing our students with modern skills for an increasingly digital world.   Our students deserve a highly trained teaching staff in terms of instructional technology. Bentley Community schools will leverage its investment in devices and couple this with a staff prepared to teach using these incredible tools and minds.

  • Adding to the innovative career, technical, dual enrollment, and programming opportunities for our young adults. Our staff will provide opportunities for students that will provide a decisive advantage unique to Bentley Community Schools.  

I invite you to join us in our journey to build upon the strengths existing within our community and district.  Let’s take this foundation and craft something truly special for the children who have the opportunity to experience Bentley Community Schools!

I am honored to serve this community.
